The Robert Rodriguez division of The Jones Group Inc. today announced the launch of a new collection by Robert Rodriguez, the Chief Designer of the division. Robert Rodriguez Edition is a contemporary capsule collection designed to complete a woman's wardrobe and lifestyle. Creating key pieces to build a woman's essential wardrobe, Rodriguez went beyond basics when designing this collection. Edition is the ultimate, on-going series of iconic items women need in their lives.
The collection embodies the signature aesthetic of Robert Rodriguez - seaming, draping and sophisticated embellishment. The approach to silhouettes is more body-conscious and based on tailoring to fit a woman's body and curves. Fabrics include luxurious textures of stretch leather, matte techno stretch, stretch suiting, draped cupro jersey, sequins, silk textured burnout, stretch shirting and signature silk prints.
Key items are soft suiting jackets in Slim Boyfriend and Tailored silhouettes, trousers in cropped, skinny and flared shapes, menswear shirting with feminine details, artfully crafted soft blouses, luxe t-shirts and dramatically draped dresses and pencil skirts.
Price points range from $295 to $595 for sportswear and $695 to $1195 for leather and outerwear pieces. The line will launch in both domestic and international fine department stores, as well as specialty boutiques and, this August, on www.robertrodriguezcollection.com.
